WSP Partner Company: Lander Loke Architect
Climate change is literally the hot topic nowadays, with much attention given to strategies to achieve “net-zero” by 2050. The concept of net zero is simple – if climate change is caused by carbon dioxide emissions, then we can stop it by not emitting more carbon dioxide and/or by removing from the atmosphere what we emit. The world’s current plan is to transition to “renewables”, plant more trees and hope we can invent high-tech direct air capture devices, and if we do these as well as reduce our burning of fossil fuels, then hopefully we can reach “net zero” by around 2050 and stop global warming. Catherine Loke will give us a holistic overview of the challenges we face and how we need to deal with our current predicament through a systems approach – understand how we got here, understand how things are interrelated, and understand what it means to be sustainable. Be prepared to challenge your assumptions, broaden your perspective and question current “green” solutions!
